Again, taric wont.be giving those benefits to anyone but his carry since thats where hell be stationed.
Nunu gives better bonuses permanently and peels much better. Lulu does everything. Literally everything. Sona has AOE stun
Taric cant compete. Alistar does his job but can also initiate and straight up tank.
Hes probably the 6th best support and essentially a caitlyn counter
Looking at Leona with hybrid mastery , shield and armor page start. She cant heal but you wont trade her ADC and poking 60 armor -11 damage isnt good idea Just deny enemy ADC so they cant buy BF fast and you can bully that lane
Distract the enemy carry...with taric...how? Why would he even pay attention to you or be in your vicinity. If taric runs at the AD carry he will get bursted instantly. He has an armor buff but hes still itemless. He has no gap closer.
Like I said, these strategies, much like Taric, only work at low elo.
If you dont believe me feel free to add me and well play a custom Game. Me and any random from this board vs you and any random. You pick taric and Ill pick Lulu. Youll see What I mean about how useless he really becomes
As I said you aren't meant to wander in alone but in a fight the AD can't simply "burst" you without some truly insane IE luck and even if he does the opportunity cost should be that he didn't use those attacks on someone else. He doesn't have gap closer but he doesn't need one since he has his ranged stun.
As always you need to apply reason and if their team has Kennen Morgana Amumu or something then maybe you shouldn't try to go close. If your team has champs that can't initiate or go in too well like AP Nidalee you aren't supposed to get yourself killed.
I don't think Taric is the best support champion and I never said that he is. He is solid but not always needed. In fact I'd say support Nautilus (very underrated imo, I don't get why Blitz is so popular but he isn't) is the main Taric outclasser at the moment since he has more CC and fights a lot better. It's not Taric's stun that is the problem as it is very good ability.
Also If you dont believe me about Nunu see the post LiftLift made on Reddit.
Nunu is the only support thats first pick first ban
Nunu is very strong and my favorite at the moment but he can still often lose lane/game so he isn't always the best. ... I think Nunu and Sona are supports that you should definitely use when you can but they aren't always the best and indeed often "countered".
